The FAO eLearning Academy offers over 350 multilingual eLearning courses, free of charge, as a global public good and is the result of a collaborative effort which involves over 200 partners throughout the world. The overall objective of the FAO eLearning Academy is to strengthen the human capital, through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and competences, in order to generate competent professionals able to face the global challenges. The FAO eLearning Academy has now reached a global audience of more than 600,000 users.
The courses are developed with all FAO technical divisions, across all Strategic Programmes (SPs) and cover the main priority areas of FAO: Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), climate smart agriculture, sustainable food systems and nutrition, food safety, food losses, child labour, responsible governance to tenure among others, and are fully aligned with the SDG Agenda 2030.
The two additional courses related to Small-scale Agricultural Mechanization Hire Services are now available in French, to support agricultural production and entrepreneurship, free of charge, as a global public good, through the FAO eLearning Academy.
The courses are the result of a joint collaboration effort involving:
1) GIZ, that has also kindly funded this project,
2) CIMMYT (International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center of the CGIAR) and
3) FAO, both the Plant Production and Protection Division (NSP) and the FAO eLearning Academy of the Partnerships and United Nations Collaboration Division (PSU).
